How To Use Fighting Five Essential Oil Blend

As the crisp winter air settles in, so too do the dreaded sniffles and coughs of cold and flu season. But fear not! Edens Garden's Fighting Five essential oil blend is your all-natural defense against these seasonal threats. This powerful essential oil blend combines the best nature has to offer to boost your immunity and keep you feeling your best.

Why Choose Fighting Five?

Fighting Five isn't just another pleasant-smelling blend. It's a carefully crafted combination of five essential oils, each with unique properties known to support a healthy immune system:

  • Lemon: Rich in d-limonene, a compound with potent antimicrobial properties according to a study published in the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Biotechnology Information.[1] This means Lemon essential oil can help fight off bacteria and viruses that might otherwise make you sick.
  • Cinnamon Leaf: Known for its immune-stimulating properties, Cinnamon Leaf oil may increase the production of white blood cells, your body's natural defense against pathogens. A study published in the NCBI suggests that cinnamaldehyde, a key component of Cinnamon Leaf oil, exhibits significant antibacterial and antifungal activity.[2]
  • Rosemary: This invigorating oil boasts potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as highlighted in research published in the NCBI. These properties can help reduce inflammation in the respiratory tract, easing congestion and discomfort associated with colds.[3]
  • Clove Bud: Renowned for its antiseptic qualities, Clove Bud oil is a natural disinfectant. This makes it a valuable weapon against airborne germs and bacteria that can contribute to respiratory illness.
  • Eucalyptus: Known for its decongestant properties, Eucalyptus oil can help clear blocked airways and ease breathing difficulties associated with colds and flu. Research suggests that eucalyptol, a key component of Eucalyptus oil, possesses significant antimicrobial activity.

Supercharge Your Defense with Fighting Five

Edens Garden's Fighting Five blend is a natural, powerful healer. Here are some great ways you can incorporate it into your daily routine to support your immune system and fight back against seasonal threats:

  • Diffuse: Add 10-15 drops of Fighting Five to your ultrasonic diffuser and let the invigorating aroma fill your home. This approach helps refresh the air and create a germ-fighting atmosphere.
  • Topical: Always dilute Fighting Five with a carrier oil like Jojoba or Grapeseed oil before topical application. Apply 2-3 drops of the diluted blend to your chest, neck, or pulse points for a refreshing and potentially immunity-boosting effect. Perform a patch test on a small area of your inner arm before full application to check for sensitivity.
  • Breathe Easy: Add 10-15 drops of Fighting Five to an Essential Oil Inhaler and take deep breaths throughout the day. This allows you to directly inhale the beneficial properties of the essential oils.
  • Shield Your Surroundings: In a glass spray bottle, combine 40 drops of Fighting Five with 1 teaspoon of grain alcohol and 2 ounces of distilled water. Shake well and mist surfaces, doorknobs, and countertops to help eliminate lingering germs and bacteria. Remember to test on an inconspicuous area of fabrics before spraying liberally. 
  • Refresh Indoor Air: To refresh indoor air, all it takes is a few spritzes of Fighting Five Natural Room Spray. Leave a bottle in the bathroom or near high-traffic areas for convenient access.

Hi Kiki! We recommend consulting with your veterinarian before using essential oils around pets.

Is Fighting Five safe to diffuse around pets?

Edens Garden

Hi Cassi! Fighting Five can be diffused around children 6-7 and up, but shouldn’t be applied topically until around age 10 due to the hot oils like Cinnamon it contains.

At what age is it safe to diffuse fighting five around?

I have been using Fighting Five for years. I really like the benefits it has provided my family. Thank you for making such wonderful products at an affordable price.

Hi Laurie! Yes, you can diffuse Fighting Five around children 6-7 but we don’t recommend applying it topically until about 10 years old.

For the fighting five essential oil, does it come in 10ml bottles only? Or does it have a bigger size?

Edens Garden

Hi June! We recommend diluting your essential oils before applying them topically. In a 10 ml roll-on, add 6 drops of Fighting Five then fill it to the top with your chosen carrier oil.

Do I need to add a carrier oil to the fighting five synergy blend to put it in my roll on bottles. If so. How many drops of the fighting five blend and how many drops of which carrier oil should I use?
Thank you for info. June

Hi Betty! You can learn more about our stance on ingesting essential oils here:

I purchased Fighting Five because it contains the same oils as Young Living Thieves, for a fraction of the cost. However, I can tell the proportions are different. Is this oil safe to ingest?

This is so much more pleasant than harsh “what the doctor ordered” remedies to help ward off colds and flu viruses! Better than spraying your home and counters with chemicals (which could prove dangerous or deadly to pets and children) Fighting Five is the safe and effective way to staying healthy during times when we are not getting enough fresh air and sunshine to take away the nasty elements. I created a spray using 40 drops Fighting Five, 1 tsp. grain alcohol, and 2 ounces distilled water combined in an amber glass spray bottle just as directed. It works great, and leaves a clean scent.
